The Spooky Men’s Chorale emerged blinking-eyed from the Blue Mountains of New South Wales fifteen years ago. Armed with only their raw vocal power, a dab touch of deadpan, improbable facial hair and an ill-matched set of hats, they have been wooing audiences throughout Australia, New Zealand and the UK ever since.
Renowned for a combination of Visigothic bravado, absurdist humour and eye-moistening tenderness, the Spookies, in middle age, are more masters of their territory than ever before, with five critically-acclaimed albums under their belt. For their 2017 UK tour, they will revisit their much loved back catalogue, exploring immense Georgian anthems alongside tender arrangements of traditional and contemporary classics – and of course, their own uniquely entertaining songs and choreography.
“Highly theatrical, they veer from weird to touching and back again. Grown up entertainment in the best, most infantile way. Don’t miss an opportunity to see them.” – Daily Telegraph
